Andy is an engaging, knowledgeable, and skilled clinician. I have known Andy professionally since 2007, and as one of the other reviewers mentioned, I agree that Andy's style is honest, direct, and compassionate. I think part of what also contributes to his success as a therapist is his passion for what he does and his drive to help people in a meaningful way. I highly recommend him if you are interested in perusing therapy or looking for a therapist.6/12/2015

Andy has a natural ability to make others feel at ease. I've been impressed with how he makes immediate and deep connections with people from a diversity of ages, experiences, and backgrounds. This stems from a genuine warmth and interest in others. Further, Andy takes a keen interest in learning about and keeping current with the science and theory in the field of psychotherapy. With Andy, you are working with a professional whose approach is evidence-based as well as tailored to each individual's needs. This is especially important for couples seeking someone who understands how to effectively and empathetically address the complexities of inter- and intrapersonal dynamics.9/7/2015
Andy has been a colleague and friend for over 11 years and I've witnessed him grow and deepen in his professional practice. I value his authenticity and humor, his perspective and sincerity - qualities which attract those seeking honest change and growth. He is grounded with years of experience in working with clients struggling around addiction/recovery as well as being a positive support system for our LGBT family. Thank goodness we have such a caring, kind and focused person to assist these communities and beyond.10/19/2014
